Past events

Venturefest 2017

Past events

Venturefest 2016

Delegates attended Venturefest amidst Brexit developments to network, connect, learn and find business support.

“Businesses have to be innovative and turn Brexit into an opportunity. Oxfordshire itself voted overwhelmingly to remain, so the result of the referendum has come as a shock to the business community. Venturefest is a good opportunity for businesses and entrepreneurs to meet and talk and try to find new opportunities because they are resilient and flexible.” Venturefest Executive Chair, Lynn Shepherd.
